The Market Rasen Mail of 55 years ago broke the news that one of the town’s main buildings had been sold.

The January 3, 1959 edition reported they had unofficially received news that Lincolnshire Co-op had bought Market Rasen Town Hall on the corner of the market place.

And, said the report, the one result of the sale was expected to be the regrettable one that the town would lose its only cinema.
